A group calling itself 'Civil Roadblock' set up tents near the Independence monument on Kiev's Independence Square on June 8 afternoon to stage a 'Maidan 3.0' action. The tents were taken down by unknown masked men at night, the online edition Ukrayinska Pravda wrote, quoting reports posted in social networking services.
The organizers said up to ten tents would be set up in "an open-ended campaign".
Photographs posted in social networking services depicted Ukrainian symbols and flags installed in the tent camp. The leaflets distributed by the action participants called the event 'Maidan 3.0' and said it was organized by 'Civil Roadblock' which made a number of demands, such as a reshuffle of the national administration, a change of the administrative system, the cancellation of amendments to the constitution and the martial law bill, a law on impeachment, a rise of salaries and pensions, and the cancellation of 'extortionate tariffs'.
The city police have made no comment either on the action or the way it ended.
